Scope:

The further education study programme „Training in Automotive Technology“ was developed and applied within the framework of a joint project of the State of Bremen, the German Society of International Cooperation (GIZ), the Institute Technology and Education (ITB) of the University of Bremen, and the Competence Center of the Chamber of Crafts Bremen (HandWERK gGmbH), in cooperation with the faculty 12 Pedagogy and Educational Sciences of the University of Bremen and the Academy of Continuing Education of the University of Bremen (quality assurance).

The further study programme is a domain-specific study programme in the sector of automotive technology. Germany is a leading automotive manufacturer in the world. The content and problem-solving technologies of the study programme are based on the high German standards and the international body of knowledge in the field of automotive technology.

Target group and didactical approach:

The certificate is aimed at teachers and trainers whose task is to train skilled workers and professionals for a global economy. To bridge these two objectives, development of technical and training competence, an innovative training methodology was used, which is refered to as learning and work assignments.

This training methodology was developed at the Institute Technology and Education (ITB) and is also used in ITB teacher training courses in automotive technology, which are offered regulary to German teachers and trainers at the University of Bremen.
